MOVING

I dreamt that i was moving, the dream centered around packing. There
wasnt much time to pack. We were moving to manitoulin island, we had
bought a small cabin. I didnt know what to do with these two fish i had
so i packed them, thinking oh well they will just die. Someone found
them and opened them up, they were still alive, i had packed them with
wet towels, which i didnt remember doing. We decided to give them to
the neighbour. There were dead bodies i needed to get rid of. They were
rolled up in blankets, i dont know who they were or where they came
from. I put them in the trunk of my car. At first there were just three
then there were two more. I thought that they would start stinking in
my car, but they didnt. I never did get rid of them in my dream, that i
remember. Our furniture was someplace else and had already been moved.
I remember trying to find the right size boxes for the things i had to
pack, it was difficult to find the right size. There were toys in the
sandbox in the backyard, i thought i would take the toys from inside,
put them out there as well, and let the neighbour children have them.
They were mostly little playmobile men, and vehicles. My husband
suggested why not sell them, i thought maybe that was a good idea, i
would sell the ones in the house, because they were a set, and would
give the ones that were outside away. We had a guy staying at our place
because he had no money and lost his job. He decided he would stay out
in the garage in a box. Whoever i was with thought he should stay in
the house but i thought it was where he wanted to be in the box in the
garage. He asked me for money to buy beer, I was very angry, and told
him that that was not the way to handle his problems. He said to me oh
you are one of those alcoholic annonymous people. I said yes but that
had nothing to do with it, he had no money and he shouldnt be drinking.
I set out in the car with the bodies still in the trunk, we stopped at
a little restaurant pub type place on the way. The moving guy was there
with the paperwork, they gave me a slip of paper to go to the office to
get a package of tissue paper for packing. Which made no sense because
i had already packed but i wanted it anyway. Next thing i remember is
we were driving and there was flooding, at first i thought it was a
river, but then realized it was water on the road because there were
hydro poles along the roadway. I went by a little cottage that was
flooded in water, i felt bad for the owners. We stopped somewhere and
went up some stairs, i dont know why. My husbands mother was with me,
she was having a hard time on the stairs, it tried to help her but she
got angry with me. When i got to our cabin i sat at the front door, and
was looking out at all the water that was in front of me, the waves
etc. I said to the person sitting beside me an older person i thought
was my mother in law but it did not look like her, I think maybe it was
my deceased grandma, how could it get any better than this, fresh air,
a beautiful ocean, and i could enjoy it every day. Then when i went
back into the cabin there was a friend of a friend there, apparently we
had gone halfs on the cabin with them. My husband was going to be mad,
he didnt like these people. Then i woke up.

Re: MOVING

DCooke,
Give me a couple of days to analyze your dream before I give a final interpretation. Your dream is very long and will take time to decode.
Thanks,
Gerard

Re: MOVING

Hi DCooke
Some dream, I think Jerry will likely give a more blended over view, in the mean time perhaps I can offer some fragments
There is certainly a lot of movement in the dream -as you appropriately entitled the dream - needing to pack, dead bodies, things to be wrapped and protected for the move, things that you thought would die, yet you find are not dead, the two fish (something there ,,, two, union; fish, Christian ,, spiritual aspects of your life) - thought dead yet were not. And more dead bodies (parts of yourself, or past aspects of yourself) that 'need to be got rid of'. Some things that you thought should 'stink' but didn't ,,, aspects that you have an aversion to but that aren't so bad perhaps?. Looking for the right sized boxes ,,,, toys in the backyard, ? issues going back into childhood
Is this a clearing and re-sorting phase of your life?

Is there a part of yourself that you have put outside in a box in the garage? Hidden, forgotten, stored away - a part of you that asks for a bit of fun, entertainment, relaxation and pushed aside?

You seem to have a greater insight into the nature of yourself, an ability to look and appreciate the beauty within, than is perhaps being acknowledged

Perhaps I best stop, as I might be completely of track - please let me know how this sits with you, best wishes, J

Re: MOVING

Thanks Justin for your reply, alot of it makes sense to me. I had interpreted my own dream, based on what is going on in my life now. Obviously there is more there that i need to work on. Playing I dont get much chance to do that.

Re: Re: MOVING

Thanks for your feed back; an intreguing aspect of dreams is that they seem to be able to refelct/ sum up or talk to us on many levels of life at the same time ,,, using our own associations with certain objects and persons to convey other ideas or feelings - often nice to mull a dream over when the mind has a few minutes. Seems as though you have parts of this in place
well done
